Following a couple of late caffeinated nights, we are pleased to announce that our latest project, Bigtop, is finally set for beta release!
Bigtop is a collection of libraries for web developers. Included in the first beta release are:
- Bigtop Routes – a library for creating type-safe bidirectional mappings between URLs and Scala code;
- Bigtop Core – a library for generating and manipulating URLs and hyperlinks in a functional style.
Routes uses the HList-based approach to bidirectional pattern matching that Dave presented at Scala Lift-Off London 2011. There are versions of the library for use with Lift, Scalatra, and plain old Java servlets.
Check the Bigtop web site for a getting started guide, API documentation, and links to the code and Maven repository.
